Sapphire specs and methods
Our system has the abaility to image fluorescence excited with 488nm 520nm 658nm or 784nm laser lines
Any signal emitted from the sample can be collected either simulataneously or sequentially (NEW!) on four PMT channels
Note :filters are listed as center of passband and width in nm so 518bp 22 would allow 509nm- 529nm to pass through to the detector
Storage Phosphor Mode
Dedicated laser and PMT settings to activate and detect signals stored in a phosphor screen that was exposed to a radiolabeled sample
A cooled CCD camera is used to detect ECL, Luminol or other chemiluminescent substrates. This can be used in place of x-ray filmand XOMAT development.
Note that on the the top of the scanner platen can be imaged with chemi.
The chemi area of the platen is also appropriate for Visible imaging of colorimetric signals in gels and blots.
Multiple types of samples can be imaged. The sample type pull down corresponds to some common types of samples
- Membrane (0 mm) The focal plane is on the glass
- Gel +0.5mm 0.5mm above the glass
- Plate +3.0mm
- Slide +1 mm 1.0mm above the glass for CS upimaging
- Custom User-selectable through 4mm of travel
